Batman Year One: creative food

In the early 2000s, provocative Hollywood (USA) movie director Darren Aronofsky was contemplating designing and creating a "Batman: Year One" project.

For those in the dark about what "Batman: Year One" exactly is, the concept refers to a comic book origin story involving a young Bruce Wayne toying emotionally with becoming a vigilante and then a crusader while meeting some well known future Batman nemesis legends such as the Joker and Scarecrow.

Well, Aronofsky envisioned casting the great Guy Pearce ("Ravenous" - 1999) in the titular role of young Batman and perhaps the talented Hayden Christensen ("Revenge of the Sith" - 2005) as the fearsome young Scarecrow.

Perhaps Aronofsky's Scarecrow would have started out as a drugstore employee before turning to a criminally insane life of wrath-inspired terrorism.

When Christopher Nolan revolutionized the project with "Batman Begins" (2005), casting Christian Bale as Batman and Cillian Murphy as Scarecrow, Batman fans more or less decided that Aronofsky's vision of Batman's origin story was a drawing room anecdote of psychiatric proportions.

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
